(rumors) Charlotte Bobcats - Clevland Cavs

Recommended Posts

This is not franchise mode on 2k12.

This is requiring the Bobcats to make 3 different trades to move out of the top ten, and that is flat out not going to happen.

The Bobcats will trade with the Cavs for #4, #24, and #33

Cat's end up with pick #4, #24, #31, and #33

thats what im hoping for. its not NFL either having 4 rooks on the roster is already 33% of the roster. then add kemba and biz thats 6 young guys, 50% of the roster. we do need some experience on the roster. 6 rooks just wont work

who do you want to sign? gordon and hibbert are nto coming here, we will sign tier 2 guys, draft a solid player and (assuming cavs trade) 2 other high potential players. build through draft, not expecting to be a top 8 team for another 2 years, then after that hopefully we can contend. after next yr gana maggs and carrol come off the books, then lets make our splash in FA with our 3 picks this yr and our 1st next yr. (already traded our 2nd for mullens)

That's all that free agency is this year, just second tier guys.

However, there are still some solid players out there like Carl Landry, Ryan Anderson, Nick Batum, Jeff Green, Michael Beasley, J.R. Smith, Courtney Lee, Nick Young, O.J. Mayo, Ramon Sessions, Nate Robinson, Aaron Brooks, Raymond Felton, and Lou Williams.

Then out of our league: Deron Williams, Eric Gordon, and Roy Hibbert

Four rooks works well for me as well.

I really think moving out of the top ten would be a huge mistake.

dont be surprised to see charlotte acquire more picks in this draft and turn around and trade them for a young vet. They need balance. They cannot overload the team with rookies.

I don't see that happening, they had their chance with Rudy Gay and decided to go elsewhere.

They won't have a better opportunity then that.

HoopsHype updates for the day

Charlotte isn’t the only upper-echelon team that’s fielding calls for its premium pick. So is Washington , which has the third pick. Several teams covet the Wizards’ third pick in order to draft either Kansas power forward Thomas Robinson or Florida shooting guard Brad Beal Racine Journal-Times

Cleveland wants Beal and has offered the No. 4 pick and either the 33rd or 34th pick to Charlotte for the No. 2 pick, which would allow the Cavs to jump ahead of Washington and land the Florida guard. The hangup is that Charlotte, not in love with anyone available at No. 2, wants Cleveland's 24th pick. Cleveland also has had conversations with Sacramento (No. 5) and Golden State (No. 7), but the Charlotte deal makes the most sense and sources say there is enough momentum and desire on both sides to get it done. The Bobcats like Robinson and Barnes, and at least one of them will be available at No. 4; if Cleveland got Beal with the second pick, Washington might take Barnes at No. 3, sources said.CBSSports.com

New Charlotte coach Mike Dunlap says the idea of trading down from the No. 2 spot in the NBA draft to acquire extra picks "makes a lot of sense" for a young team like the Bobcats. After finishing 7-59 and with the worst winning percentage (.106) in NBA history, the Bobcats have a variety of holes to fill this offseason. Dunlap recognizes that. Cleveland Plain Dealer

That's one of the reasons he said the Bobcats are taking a "hybrid thinking" approach to Thursday night's draft, which means evaluating the talent available at No. 2 while simultaneously looking into the feasibility of moving down and picking up an additional first-round draft pick. He said the option of trading down "is on the board." "I think anybody in our situation would have that on the board," Dunlap said. "(Our) people are very smart up top. So options and thinking of your variables is a very smart thing to do." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Who do the Bobcats take at two if not Beal? One source familiar with their thinking says they’re leaning toward Kansas power forward Thomas Robinson. If that’s the case, Kentucky small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could drop all the way to No. 5. But the Bobcats could also take him at No. 2, a source said. FOXSportsOhio

Continued

Not coincidentally on Monday, the Bobcats auditioned two of the best shooters in college basketball last season – guards Kim English from Missouri and John Jenkins from Vanderbilt. English (6-foot-6 and 192 pounds) raised his 3-point percentage from 37 percent as a junior to 46 percent as a senior. Jenkins (6-4, 212 pounds) was the best 3-point shooter in Vanderbilt history, averaging 44 percent over three college seasons. Charlotte Observer

The Bobcats could use the No. 2 overall pick on a shooter, such as North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes or Florida’s Bradley Beal. But if they go with a big man at No. 2, such as Kansas’ Thomas Robinson, the logical use of the 31st pick is a player like English or Jenkins. Charlotte Observer

Tyrone Bogues: “It’s more important to get involved with the community. No matter what the name is, you’ve got to engage and make sure people know who they are. About the Hornets, the town knew us, they knew our families and knew what we were about. A lot of these guys (the Bobcats players) you don’t know much about.” Charlotte Observer

So basically, no one knows who we are picking or what we are doing.

Fantastic.

I love all the internet GMs on here over-thinking everything.

Also, I don't think the Bobcats are going to try to hard to get too many free agents and overpay them. We are going to go through another horrible season and try to develop all the young guys on the team and try to get another top pick in a draft that should be pretty loaded next season.

Edit nvm, forgot that we included a conditional first in the TNT trade.

Dumb move.

Hopefully Portland get's the 13th pick next year lol.

The Bobcats brought in Dunlap to develop younger players, so why would they be concerned with a lot of rookies? Just because it's unconventional?

I'm going to be pissed if Washington ends up picking Barnes. Then I'm going to select Washington as one of the teams whose games I always get to watch instead of the plodding Bobcats with Robinson.
